Small Bar

31 King Street, Bristol BS1 4DZ

small bar bristol vegan beer guide beermuda

Despite the name, there’s not only plenty of room inside (including an upstairs), but also a huge selection of beer to choose from. It’s one of the quirkiest bars in Bristol with the beer selections written on pallets hung from the wall. Thankfully the listings are well organised by beer style, from Pale Ales to Sours, to make choosing easier. Also not to be missed is the wonderfully titled ‘Crazy Shit’ selection of strong or unusual beers! The walls surrounding the bar are adorned with the pump clips of beers that have featured on the taps throughout their short history. Small Bar are also unique with the interesting branded glassware that they offer in various sizes to enjoy your drink from. The beer lineup often includes Bristol breweries such as Moor or Left Handed Giant as well as other vegan friendly ones from around the UK including Camden Town Brewery and Chorlton Brewing Company.

East Bristol Bakery

112 St. Marks Rd, Easton, Bristol, BS5 6JD

The East Bristol Bakery is a small craft bakery in the heart of Easton, Bristol, UK. We make high quality traditional breads, seasonal specials, and tasty sweet treats that include Vegan, dairy free and wheat free offerings.

Alex makes a range of 10 different loaves, from traditional granary type ‘Malthouse loaves’ to long fermentation sourdough breads – all made with organic flour from Shipton Mill. The bread is made fresh every morning and any left over from the day before is distributed to local charities so there is very little waste.

Nikki produces seasonal cakes, as well as constant firm favourites like the Cherry and Marzipan or Butternut Squash Muffins. There are always vegan options, as well as dairy free and often wheat free choices. Of course the cakes use the best quality ingredients, which are organic where possible.

Crofters Rights

117-119 Stokes Croft, Bristol BS1 3RW

crofters rights

Situated in the heart of Stokes Croft and a stone’s throw from the vegan delight that is Cafe Kino is the Crofters Rights. The austere exterior hides the beautiful, almost rustic barn like interior. At the bar you’re faced with a long line of shiny cask and keg taps. Behind each of which is a chalkboard giving the name of the beer and brewery, it’s strength, country of origin and a few tasting notes. Expect to see many of the Bristol breweries feature on the pumps as well as vegan friendly breweries from further away including Brass Castle and Marble. Look out for the vegan pizza on the menu too!

The Lansdown menu boasts a variety of tasty dishes, with as many of our ingredients as possible sourced locally, and prepared in our kitchen.

On Sunday, the Lansdown serves its legendary roast. Everything is freshly prepared and cooked in our kitchen, so we’re able to be flexible with dietary requirements – our lovely vegetarian Sunday nut roast is now vegan (we can also provide a vegan pudding option). We can also offer Gluten free gravy on request.

Yes the rumours are true, Maitreya Social is in the process of changing hands. Myself and the team will be operating until the 15th September as normal. I am moving to California to pursue many new things. The new owners will indeed be the Bristolian. As far as their plans for the restaurant go I am not involved and so I would rather not speculate. Best wishes, Barney

The Eat a Pitta falafel recipe originated in Grandma Yolandes’ kitchen in the back streets of Algiers more than 70 years ago. As a kid I was always glued to my grandmothers side as she taught me how to make the perfect falafel, crispy on the outside, moist in the middle.

Armed with my grandma’s secret recipe and 12 years experience cooking in the restaurant biz, I realised my dream in November 2011 and opened ‘eat a pitta’ in St Nicholas market in Bristol.

Come and try our delicious falafels at Eat a Pitta today! Hopefully you will be able to taste that little bit of history in every bite!
